True Friendships (by Oriza Martins)

True Friendships

Says the proverb that
the one who has friends, has everything.
And the one who thinks that has everything,
But lives without anybody,
In loneliness, with not friends,
Actually, little has…

Ties that bond people
In sincere friendships,
Hardly drift into
the drain of cruelty.

Real friendships
Are like a rare essence,
That envolves us with carress
And supply our needs.

For material goods,
There are stores to buy.
But there are not stores that can
offer friendships…

And in the hours of uncertainty,
Who should we count?
Whatever might a danger be
It will never have the value
Of a sincere friend shoulder…
